Default Igman belted ammo

Have an opportunity to purchase a crate or two of them this ammo. Has anybody had any experience with it. What would you say would be a fair price?

The head stamp is 88 30-06.

Supposedly this is Surplus ammunition is from a Venezuelan contract. I never heard of it before and I don't know if it's good quality stuff or not.

Was discussed a few years ago. I imagine it depends on the price....

I bought 2000 rds of it about 18 years ago - unbelted it, clipped it, and it is as good as GI ever was. The brass is excellent & reloads very well - if I didn't have so much 06 I would buy it if it came available...

I happened to buy some fired Igman brass in 6.5X55 swedish in Igman boxes. I started to deprime the "large rifle primers" and the ignition hole in the brass was too small for the pin in RCBS die to push the primer out. you may run into the same headache depending on how old the 30 cal brass is.

You won't have an issue with the .30cal.


besides a quick twist with a drill bit and those 6.5x55 cases are perfect.

But first you need to find a "needle" to knock the old primer out, then you can ream the hole with a drill bit

I just used a lee universal decapper...knocked them all out no issues.

If you find the pin too "fat" just spin it in emory cloth until it fits the hole...then you are all set!
